Alpine County Planted Last Week 1800 lbs of 3- to 10 lb Rainbows!

East Carson River (CA) - Markleeville, CA (Alpine County)

by Doug Busey

The water here has fluctuated a little over the last couple weeks. This is due to the water being let out of Kinney Reservoir. The CDFW planted the river this week with catchable rainbow trout. Alpine County planted the river last week with 1800 lbs of 3- to 10 lb rainbow trout. I would take a walk up and down the river as they have spread out over the last week or so. I would suggest to lighten up your drag a little and get ready for a good fight. Power eggs or salmon eggs have been most productive. Some anglers have been throwing small spinners with good success. For more information stop by the Carson River Resort.


Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
